    I opened my indox thru yahoo.com via web browser.

    I have 2 blank messeges with sender "-" yeah, just a hyphen.

    When I selected the messeges to view them, the sender is:
    "-" <xxxxxxxx@yahoo.com> where xxxxxxxx is my account name.

    I know that I didn't send two blank messages to myself. Does anybody know what is going on here?

    Thanks for any help.

    Its very easy to spoof the sender address, so most likely someone sent the email and set the sender email address to be yours. I wouldn't worry about it.

    But take the time to double check that your login password isn't easily predictable. Plenty of sites that will tell you good form to choosing passwords.
